ACHIEVEMENTS From 2014 to 2017 the tourist flow in Cyprus increased by 50%. The growth of tourist traffic in the winter (from November 1 to March 31) in the same period reached 70%. All this became possible due to an increase in the number of flights on traditional routes for Cyprus and the opening of new routes.
In Cyprus, now build 13 hotels: three 5-star (in Agios Tychonas, Sotira and Larnaca), three 4-star (in Kato Paphos, Ayia Napa and Geroskipou), seven 3-star (three in Ayia Napa, two – in Protaras and one at Polis and Chloraka). Another 60 hotels have just opened after modernization or are about to do so. NEEDS It is necessary to create a separate Ministry of Tourism (ideally) or a sub-ministry, which will operate autonomously in the bowels of the Ministry of Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism.
